What Kids Are Saying About School, Family and COVID-19

We sometimes think of parenting as a set of strategies to give our kids a head start in a life of success. We want to instil values, build character, and prepare them to face the world. Yet at its heart, being a parent is about sharing an empowering relationship with our children so they will become resilient to face any challenge.

You're probably already doing your best to invest time and energy with your kids, but it's not always easy especially with the uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought. Our goal with  Race to Praise  is to make it easy for you to reconnect with your kids, nurture them with resilience to handle setbacks, and help you grow too!
